STOP THE WORLD

worry

About a year ago, I started posting cartoons pertaining to writers.  I did this as a means of taking my mind off of the negativity going on prior to our last election.  Laughter can be good medicine, but so often the negativity doesn’t magically disappear with a nonsensical image or a funny story.

In fact, negativity is a tool of our most mortal enemy, the devil.  He uses it to make us question, to create doubt, to enrage and to cause hatred and finally bring us down to his level.  When he gains control, all hell breaks loose, (no pun intended) and exposes the dark side in each of us.

I happen to believe that we’re much better than that.  For the most part our people want to live in harmony.  We don’t all hate or explode with anger the minute some new opinion arises.  I think we, as Americans, get sick of all the nonsense that appears on our television screens each day.  Yet, those who deem it necessary to control our thinking, are on location when any kind of negative behavior occurs.  Before things have a chance to go to trial; before all the facts have been gathered, before the incidents even happen, the media has already made it impossible for us to think for ourselves.  Somehow, the devil has made it into the newsroom and begun the brainwashing.

Over time, we’ve become numb to all the ugliness we see everyday.  It wasn’t enough to see men crushed in battle during Viet Nam.  The embedded media took it on itself to show us every brutal deed as it happened. We’ve been eyewitnesses to assassinations, cold blooded murder, theft, corruption all in the name of instant news and instant gratification.  We have become apathetic, because we feel there is nothing we can do about it.

I think there is something we can do.  First we have to approach the King of Creation in prayer.  We need His direction once more.  We have allowed the devil to win if we don’t turn back to God.  We need a spiritual revolution.  God has promised to heal our land when we rely on His intervention.

We also need to become a United States again.  The split between the races is just as great as it was in the 1960’s.  Join me in praying for our land, our government, our people and the final destruction of the evil one who is trying to ruin us.  In the end God will win.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  2. I agree 100%, and though I used to post quite a bit on FB during the elections politically, I’ve scaled back some, and felt I needed to focus more on the ‘positive,’ (Chrisitanity, positive uplifting stories, family, humor, etc.) I have been in the social network circles for awhile now, and I used to be so grieved at the hateful ‘debates’ between Christians, and now on FB, many who call themselves Christian…say some of the most hateful things. Instead of speaking life into situations, or being peacemakers (not appeasers), many are so negative…and you can’t tell the difference between those that are Christian or those in the ‘world.’ We are to be bold, but speak the truth in love. Sorry to go on and on. Not my intention to write a blog on your blog…lol. God bless…and have a wonderful day!

      Thanks for your thoughts on this. I have been in the same boat. I don’t want to argue with these people, but the remarks I’m seeing on FB are truly hateful. It seems those who lost the last election are hell bent on making the job impossible for our new president. The hate has to end. I think the numbers of people involved in this is minimal, but negativity simply breeds more negativity and soon the devil has his foot in the door. I guess the best solution is to pray for our country.
